ALSO IN MICHAEL BAY'S $1 BILLION SUMMER BLOCKBUSTER
"TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION"
LOS ANGELES (September 3, 2014) – Irish/Australian actor GLENN KEOGH continues to soar on-screen appearing in the brand new CBS drama series, SCORPION, set to premiere on Monday, September 22, 2014.
Keogh also hit the big screen this summer in the biggest movie release of 2014, Michael Bay’s action-thriller, TRANFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION, which already broke the $1 Billion mark at the box office. Keogh also landed on the small screen in Showtime’s mega-hit drama series, RAY DONOVAN, and NBC’s long-running daytime drama, DAYS OF OUR LIVES.
Inspired by a true story, SCORPION follows genius Walter O’Brien (Elyes Gabel) as he recruits other geniuses to help solve complex problems of the world. Keogh emerges as Walter’s Dad, joining the all-star cast including Robert Patrick, Katharine McPhee, Eddie Kaye Thomas, Ari Stidham, Jadyn Wong and Ernie Hudson.
In June, Paramount Pictures released the latest installment in the global blockbuster franchise, TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION. The action-thriller stars Mark Wahlberg as an automobile mechanic, who along with his daughter makes a discovery that brings down the Autobots and Decepticons, and a paranoid government official, on them. Keogh joined in the new fight, after an epic battle that left a great city torn, but with the world saved.
Also this August, Keogh appeared in Showtime’s mega-hit drama series, RAY DONOVAN. As Ray Donovan (Lief Schreiber) gets tied up with the latest fixer situation, Keogh stepped in as an Irish Immigration Officer to counsel Terry Donovan (Eddie Marsan) on a move out of the country. And, Keogh has recurred for the past several months on NBC’s long-running daytime drama, DAYS OF OUR LIVES, as Brother Timothy.
Originally from the suburb of Blackrock in Dublin, Ireland, this acting powerhouse has built a solid resume since arriving in Hollywood by way of Australia. After receiving his Accounting degree from Griffith College Dublin and experiencing a career-ending soccer injury, Keogh packed up and headed for Australia. It was while working in the Corporate IT Industry in Brisbane, that he began honing his talents as an actor, earning a nomination for a Queensland Best Actor Award.
Today, Keogh has worked on 3 continents and in dozens of film and television projects. His American credits include prominent roles in: SONS OF ANARCHY, CRIMINAL MINDS, CASTLE, GENERAL HOSPITAL and UNDERCOVERS among others.
Keogh is also passionate about helping others, volunteering with the non-profit organization H.E.R.O. - Housing, Education and Rehabilitation of Orphans (www.HaitiHero.org), which offers hope for the over 300,000 orphans in Haiti. Keogh helped significantly to raise the funds necessary to build an orphanage with plans to assist in raising awareness and funding for several more in the near future.
